Chinese New Year: A global Chinatown celebration

Living in Boston has opened a lot of different cultural doors for me. A city rich with some of the best universities in the States and a rooted corporate culture, naturally attracts a lot of xpats from all over the world, contributing to the city’s deep ethnic mosaic. Recently I visited the Boston Chinatown with a couple of my Chinese friends, to celebrate their traditional Chinese new year, without having any idea of what will I end up experiencing. But the moment I stepped outside the China gate, I could hear gongs making music, firecrackers bursting on the streets, and lions dancing everywhere surrounded by a huge cheering crowd…

And lets accept it, I can not always be frugal about my travel choices. I need to earn to support the life of my dreams. And this is when the confusion started and the irritation seeped in. I didn’t know if I was failing at my passion, or was I just doing it wrong? Or was everyone around me overdoing it. And overrating it.

You’re purging a bunch of stuff you don’t need and taking good care of what you want to keep and it feels really good when you’re done – like things have been set right again. This is how we define luxury – it’s almost synonymous with a sense of relief and accomplishment.

New year followed soon after the still fresh, first snowfall of Boston, 2015. It was cheerful as always, and glittering like every year, but it all still felt new to us. This was our first New year eve in Boston city, and I can’t sound enough surprised at how lively it was, with families, children, youngsters, couples, and friends, all strolling through the singing and dancing streets.
